The Duty Drawback Process

The Duty Drawback program refunds duty on imported goods provided that they meet one of three conditions: 

  • The imported goods are later exported as-is. 
  • The imported goods are used to produce or manufacture other goods that are then exported. 
  • They are obsolete or surplus goods to be destroyed. 
Once you are registered for the Duty Drawback program, have made your claim, and that claim has qualified, Customs will refund the duties you paid on those goods.
